A Florida police officer resigned hours after the revelation of video showing him use a racial slur against a black man.

Officer Michael Naples, a rookie St. Petersburg police officer, stepped down after the video was released showing him insult a man after issuing him a court summons, reported WFTS-TV.

The officer responded to a dispute between a pizza delivery driver and a customer who was accused of striking the driver’s vehicle with a fire extinguisher.

Naples issued a notice of referral to the man for criminal mischief, but the officer got into an argument with the man as he was leaving.

The black man, Levonte Daniels, recorded video of the encounter on his cell phone, and Naples can be heard calling him a “piece of sh*t n*gger.”

Daniels said the insult “really hurt.”

“It’s not the first time I’ve been called that word,” Daniels told Bay News 9. “So it didn’t hurt because I was called that word, it hurt because that was a police officer.”

Department supervisors met with Naples, who was a probationary officer sworn in last July, to watch the video and discuss his remarks to the man.

Naples resigned from the department, but he would have been fired if he had not.

“We hold our officers to the highest professional standard,” said Chief of Police Anthony Holloway. “The use of profanity and racial slurs is not tolerated under any circumstances.”

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.

Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint

Published

on

This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.

Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.
